is particularly important technology. because people confuse this gigantic group of stocks which comprises more than 50% of the s&p 500 constantly. tech is actually a whole group of sectors. semiconductors, disk drive, personal computers, large scale enterprise hardware makers, cell phones, tech, telecommunications tech, assemblers. each has a separate growth rate and i like to look at the growth rates of the companies i follow versus the individual slices of the sectors. because the sector growth rate doesn't work even though people keep trying to use it. cloud stocks are highly valued. meaning their priced to earnings growth rate are extreme. that means no room for error or hair as we call it, meaning something's wrong. reported a magnificent quarter. but the guidance for the billings was lighter than i was hoping. the stock immediately got pancaked and stayed ugly for a long time. why? because it underperformed its portion of the technology sector even as its growth rate would have been outstanding for a personal computer related stock for a disk drive, semiconductor, or cell phone company.

to be a bullish sign for the overall story, right? if technology hasn't participated that start to. >> exactly. so many people in bearish technology. it is great you point that out. nasdaq is associated with tech. i would continue to buy the quality tech names. >> that does it for us. have a great weekend. power start now. >> halftime is over. >> "power lunch" and second half of the trading day starts right now. >> it does start right now. and the rally lives at least for now, major indexes wiping out losses for the week. s&p 500 touching multiyear highs. rally, alive. a heart beat there. dow back above 14,000. even the nasdaq joining the party. it is on pace to close at a 12-year high. of course, have you heard -- i bet you probably haven't heard. northeast is bracing for a blizzard. thousands of flight have been cancelled. two feet of snow expected in some areas. mostly to the north of new york city. the latest on the storm path and at which sectors will be impacted the most. >>> first on cnbc, mattel meeting analyst. toy maker ceo will speak with us first on "power lunch" before he spokes with
higher, transports, mid caps, small caps that haven't seen the rally like technology up only about 2% this year? >> no, i think that we see a rotation. i mean, my favorite area to be right now is stocks that have gdp sensitivity, and that are globally diversified. because i think these stocks have gotten beaten down over the last couple of years. this is tech, this is energy, this is big cap, industrials, these are stocks that have basically been -- that have gotten cheaper over the last couple of years, around fears of a global recession, around fears that the rest of the world isn't as strong as the u.s. today, i think that it's time to really reverse that trade and go back into some of the more globally geared gdp sensitive stocks that are cheap, they're underowned, and it looks like the global economy could actually outpace the u.s. this year, and for the next couple of years. >> savita we talked to a bunch of strategists this year who are, i would say, aggressive to -- i mean, mixed in terms of their defensive nature regarding sector allocation, that they might step on the accel
